Lake Cassidy ~ March 17, 2013

We checked out this short hike that Craig Romano posted as his Hike of the Week for March 15, 2013.
It's located in Marysville, Washington and makes a fun, quick hike that you don't have to drive very far to get to. Check out Craig's post in the link above for directions. He also gives directions to the ADA parking area that makes this lake accessible to disabled hikers.

The day that we went it started hailing in the middle of our walk. Luckily the hail didn't last long!

You can see some of the hail in this picture

This hike is part of the Centennial Trail and is a paved, level trail used by bicyclists and pedestrians.

After 1 1/4 miles Lake Cassidy appears through the trees.

Here's the first view of the lake from the trail

There is a picnic area, educational kiosk and a nice boardwalk when you reach the lake.

Here is a portion of the boardwalk that extends out onto the lake

One of my favorite signs that spring is coming! Skunk Cabbage.

Happy Spring hiking!
